  • Pitch Bender
  • Portamento with optional "Constant Time Glide" function
  • Delays
  • Arpeggiator
  • Poly, Mono, Multi and Legato Mode
  • Separate keyboard zones for each voice (key splitting) allows to play voices separately
  • Free controller assignments to Modulation Velocity AUD0, Velocity AUD1, Wheel and Aftertouch
  • Wave and CC sequences which allow more percussive sounds
  • 2 Wavetables, 3 modes (Single 1x32, double 2x16 and Kit)
  • In Kit Mode Wavetable is used as Key mapping table
  • The wavetable sequencer can be combined with the arpeggiator in order to realize complex textures

  • OS independent MaxMsp Manager
  • BankStick support (128 sound patches per stick, up to 2 are internally connected)

I will propose a batch quickly, I hope in october, thank you for your interest, your can find some photos of prototype in my album...

I wasn't aware of little-scale's work, thank you, is it your work? What's the A26F interface? Does it work with synthcard?

Maybe You Can help me. I am looking for someone who has already identified sounds and their codes (AUDF / AUDC), to complete Patchs and Banks.

I'm looking for a typical melody for box startup, a MIDI file + code(AUDF/AUDC) for each note used in sequence, length from 1 to 3s.
